This Sikh painting of the Sikh Guru Har Rai will make an impressive addition and provide a noble impression to your cherished art collection.
Guru Har Rai Sahib Ji (16 January 1630 – 20 October 1661) was the seventh of the Sikh Gurus. He became Guru on 8 March 1644 following the footsteps of his grandfather. Just before his death at age 31, Guru Har Rai Sahib passed the Guru Gaddi to His Younger Son, the five year old Guru Har Krishan. Guru Har Rai was a man of peace and continued to spread Sikhism with vigor in his lifetime.
The relatively withdrawn and contemplative character of the seventh Guru is well captured by the painter here. The Guru is simply seen walking, carrying a staff, while a colorfully attired attendant follows behind, raising over the Guru's head an enormous chhatra-parasol which shields him on the one hand from the sun which shines brightly in the sky above, and betokens, on the other, his exalted status. A very pleasant air, an expression of quite thoughtfulness, marks the mien of Guru Har Rai. No flamboyance is in evidence: he is dressed very simply, a long and knee-length cloak of fine muslin worn over pajama-trousers of a fine brocaded material. A simple turban covers the head, and there is the barest of jewelry on the person. But a finely drawn nimbus surrounds the Master's head.
With its soft coloring and clean, crisp lines, the painting is filled with delicate touches. This is no routine work but one done with great feeling.
